Pyrgos Petreza is a fabulous vineyard in Greece designed to preserve traditional local architecture. Here, you can also marvel at the natural beauty of the Greek landscape.
Spread across 800m², Pyrgos Petreza has that intimate feel, making it the ideal destination for all kinds of formal events. However, nothing compares to having a destination wedding in Athens, Greece, here! Besides being an idyllic event location, Pyrgos Petreza is also a winery. That said, when hosting a pre-wedding event/dinner, the guests can visit the vineyards and taste the delicious Greek wine.
Other than wine — the drink of love — there are plenty of other opportunities for romance. The little chapel on the property makes this the ultimate spot for an Orthodox destination wedding in Athens.

Montana and Alex saw the appeal of this opportunity, so they decided to have their May wedding at Pyrgos Petreza.
